Doesn't Michelle look magnificent in this blue gown?
Artfully accessorised by glittering Christmas trees in the background,
she is wearing Vera Wang cobalt tulle, with fluffy organza feathers in the draped section.
Look who's stepping out with the mother-in-law!
Catherine looks happy in the company of Camilla,
who by all accounts is being a tremendous help in advising on the pitfalls
and perks of life as a Royal.
I love Camilla's sparkling silver skirt and velvet jacket.
Red velvet suits St Nicholas, too.
This St Nick came from Tasmania a few years ago.
It has the Aussie touch of gum nuts and leaves, and a sweet handpainted face.
Isn't the cooler weather nice after that long heatwave?
The Garden of Neglect is loving the rain, too.
Have you started/finished your Christmas shopping yet?
Bye now ..
